S01 E08 - TOW Nana Dies Twice

TOW a Denim Bib, Zombie Nana, and Chopstick-Fork-Knife Thingees

OAD: 11/10/94



It’s “TOW Nana Dies Twice” and Ross is on muscle relaxants, so we’re drinking Painkillers!


Nutmeg nuggets are the way to go. Oh, the trials of trying to cook ramen in the microwave (dehydrated carrots), Elizabeth won’t settle for anything less than THE chopstick-fork-knife thingees, Gellers don’t know they’re Jewish yet so they eat ham, classic break room fare

  • Chandler’s ramen noodles at the office

  • Chinese food at Monica & Rachel’s

    • THE CHOPSTICK-FORK-KNIFE THINGEES! https://janmstore.com/products/forkchop

  • Funeral: white wine, cheese and crackers, fruit, ham (aren't they Jewish?)

  • Nestle Quik in a can, honey, microwave popcorn in break room


Brown is the new … brown. Rachel channels her inner baby in a denim bib. Country Rachel. Rachel channels Ben Franklin - when did Colonial become sexy? Monica backslides into brown and grey (NOT a law firm). Science Boy makes a secret guest appearance, and Phoebe makes us want cake. Joey wears a ginormous sweater but it’s okay because he’s really nice in real life.

It’s official -- we’re in apartment 20! We’re putting it out there: We will go on a Warner Bros. studio tour with Ellen. The joys of dead people and our worst fears. Attention whippersnappers: Learn about “punching the clock,” giant portable televisions, and “gaydar” (aka pre-Grindr). Laughing at funerals. And through tears. And in general. Because life.

  • Ross and Mr. Geller sitting identically at the hospital

  • Dead people waking up and moving -- Elizabeth's WORST FEAR and why she sucks at being around dead people (funerals, etc.)

  • Everybody thinking Chandler was gay the first time they met: Monica had a crush on him, Rachel met him several times (but references him staring at her breasts throughout Phoebe’s entire birthday party, PLUS helped Monica try to seduce him back in high school. OH AND KISSED HIM AT THE COLLEGE PARTY)


  • Joey talking about how women thinking Chandler is gay could work well for him: “You’re a stealth heterosexual”
